Once I walked into the room on the first day of school, I was scared and nervous. But after I saw the couch, the comfy cubes, and the awesome comfy chairs, I knew his was going to be a awesome year. Well, I guess I was right. Do you want to know why? I’ll tell you that later. It’s something to do with successes, improvements, favorites, and life lessons.
Here are some highlights and achievements in fifth grade. I am going to share some things that I succeeded on. Also, I will describe some my improvements I had. Another thing I will explain is fifth grade memories. Lastly, I will demonstrate my life lessons I will take with me. Now let’s begin about my fifth grade year!
Now, here are some things I succeeded on. One thing I succeeded on is powers of 10 in math. It was hard but at the end on my post-test I did as I expected. Another thing I powered through is finding great books for me and understanding the text much better in Reading. Mr. Jones and his huge classroom library got me to find awesome books and understand the text better. Some of these books are The Crossover, The Fourth Stall, and The False Prince which was actually a read aloud. So that makes me a better reader. Lastly, I also improved on figuring out what to write about when I ask myself “what if” questions in writing. Those were some examples of what I succeeded on.
I am going to share with you some things I have improved on this year. One improvement I had is I grew my vocabulary. Some words I learned are boorish, malevolently, apprehensively, and dejected. Those were just some examples. Another improvement I had was my handwriting. The last example I improved on is science. I was really terrible at science because it was hard to understand and now I am getting better.
Here are some of my favorites this year. One of my favorite things I got to do is join The Flock. I like the community of all of the students that were in The Flock. Another thing I got to do is our owl pellets. That was a very fun science experiment. The last fun thing I got to do is the pool party! Now that was fun swimming and hanging out with my friends at the pool. That is 3 examples of my favorite things of my fifth grade year!
Now, Here are a few life lessons I will take with me. One thing I learned is don’t shut down if you get a question wrong on a test or something. Another lesson I learned is always when you work with more than one person and you are working smoothly then you will work faster. The last life lesson I learned is help someone else before you help yourself. These were some good life lessons I learned this year.
This was a little bit about my big fifth grade year! I told you about some of my successes this year. I also shared with you some of my improvements of this year. Another thing I told you about is my fifth grade memories this year. Last thing I shared with you is my life lessons from fifth grade that I will take with me somewhere else. Once I walked out of the school building, I knew I was taking a step further to something bigger but I will always remember my elementary days at J.W. Reason. That was summarizing my fifth grade year!
